The Neighbors


Plants thrive incredibly
inside their shack.
Without money
education
opportunity
they defy logic.

Is it magic
or are the cultivators
blessed?

How does such a model
of poverty
get by with just botany?

They say it’s a matter
of relativity.
The neighbors
ashamed
of the eyesore
still marvel at their craft.
